A judge in New York has ordered New York City to rehire employees fired for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccines, and called the vax mandates “arbitrary and capricious.”

Per Just the News:

“The petitioners should not have been terminated for choosing not to protect themselves,” Richmond County Judge Ralph Porzio wrote in his ruling Monday, in response to the case filed by 16 New York City employees after they were fired for not taking the vaccine.

“The vaccination mandate for [New York] City employees was not just about safety and public health; it was about compliance,” he also said.

The judge acknowledged that the city health commissioner has the authority to issue public health mandates but said the commissioner could not “create a new condition of employment for City employees” or “terminate employees.”

Porzio said the petitioners would be reinstated to full employment effective Tuesday, but it is unclear whether this has occurred.

Naturally, the city is appealing the ruling.

But if there is any justice, they will lose a second time.
